Vitamin E + Skincare
Why Vitamin E is so important in skincare?
Let’s start off by saying that Vitamin E is one of the most amazing vitamin to use on your skin. Not only does this vitamin reduce hyperpigmentation and dark spots but it also has anti-inflammatory properties to maintain healthy skin. It even has moisturizing and healing benefits to repair the skin from any scarring. Something you may not know is that Vitamin E is a fat-soluble that acts as an antioxidant when used in skincare, it is in a group eight fat-soluble compounds which falls into two classes: four tocopheryl acetate and four tocopherol which is commonly use in skincare products (FYI: alpha-tocopherol is the only form of the vitamin E that can be consumed). That is why we are always making sure that we are providing our Blass Babes with the safest and best ingredients to promote healthy and glowing skin!
Beauty benefits of using Vitamin E?
Vitamin E is naturally found in our bodies as an oil that coats the outer layer of our skin which acts as a barrier, fighting against free radicals to keep our skin moisturized. As we age, we naturally deplete levels of Vitamin E, (hence why there is anti-aging serums and oils to help prevent this sooner then it needs to happen) but luckily our Blass Balm has Vitamin E as one of its main ingredients!
Below are some benefits of using Vitamin E in your daily skincare routine:
- It treats hyperpigmentation and Melasma when paired with Vitamin C.
- Prevents early aging and wrinkles.
- Nourishes and protects your skin from the damages caused by the sun and acts as a barrier.
- It is rich in antioxidant properties and combats against free radicals.
- Discourages the production of sebum (oil), which prevents blackheads from forming.
- Repair the skin from acne scarring.
- Soothes irritation in your skin.
How often should you use Vitamin E?
Vitamin E is a great ingredient to use as a base layer in your skincare, up to 2x’s a day to seal in the moisture. Our Blass Balm is the perfect product to add to your skincare routine, made with all natural ingredients and gentle enough for all skin types (our Balm is also considered a primer, so you never have to worry about the vitamin E oil being too thick to put under your makeup). You get all the vitamin and essential nutrient you need all-in-on to protect your skin and achieve a clear complexion!
